    Pros

    Great Technology, very loyal customers, unique OEM relationships

    Cons

    Weak management, no real dynamics in sales, too many "hangers-on" in sales, too little accountability, HQ mentality at opposite to that in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Accept less mediocrity, embrace the strengths that the company and its products have and go after the competitors. Stop being so callow!!

  2. Good company, pay for performance

    Pros

    Company is innovative and they truly believe in pay for performance. If you do well, you do well.

    Cons

    You are somewhat on an island. When things don't go well with products or problems, you are somewhat on an island to get things smoothed over. Also, Brocade still runs as 2 separate companies and they have not done a good job combining the old Foundry company with Brocade.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job in making all employees BROCADE employees instead of IP guys or SAN guys. Also, stop broadcasting the San Jose events out to the whole company. Brocade is a global company so it's poor form to hear a broadcast about a San Jose team building event, etc.
